It’s been an exciting time in our family. Kevin M. and Angelee were married on Saturday and yesterday we celebrated Zachary’s 12th birthday. Kristi made some of her wonderful homemade pizza with all of the fixings and Zach wanted a chocolate truffle cheesecake for his birthday cake. It was a beautiful, sunny February day.
Kristi celebrated her 18th birthday yesterday.
We celebrated Jacob’s 15th birthday yesterday.
We eat lots of birthday cake in July. Josiah, Luke and Nicholas were all born in the same month. Josiah’s birthday is the last one we celebrate in July. He turned 10 on July 31.
Luke celebrated his 16th birthday yesterday. His Dad took him out for breakfast and for his birthday supper he wanted tacos. The birthday cake he picked was a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cake. The cake was chocolate with peanut butter frosting and covered with chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. We went for an evening swim so Luke could try out his new swim mask.
Yesterday got off to a great start with my morning walk. At lunch time Nicholas, Zachary, Josiah and I had a picnic at Hartwick Pines and enjoyed some time afterward at the Wood Shaving Days Festival there. We saw blacksmiths, wood carvers and many other artisans demonstrating their skills and displaying their handwork. The boys got to work on puzzles one blacksmith had forged. Nick managed to get his apart and put it together again. After supper we had cake and ice-cream. I had a wonderful day celebrating my birthday with my family.
Nicholas celebrated his 13th birthday yesterday. He wanted to go to the lake and do some swimming but it was cool and rainy all day. I told him I’d take him today instead since it’s going to be warm and sunny. Kevin did take Nick, Zach and JD for a quick swim after supper though so he did get to swim a bit like he wished.
It was nice to have Kevin M. home for his birthday this weekend.
